There has never been a dearth of assholes in our world, but I think recent years has raised them to a level of importance they never previously enjoyed.

The assholes are everywhere! Obviously, we know who the biggest asshole of them all is, but please don’t forget the rest of the crowd.

No need to name America’s biggest asshole. We all know him.

I have to thank my husband and his friends for bringing this important holiday to my attention. I had long felt that the morons, jerks, and assholes in our lives were not getting the recognition they deserve.

Often ignored and disrespected, this is a special day, dedicated to them all. The assholes we love, the ones we meet on the street. The ones we worked with and for. And most especially, for those we elected to run the nations of our world. If you voted for the asshole, please feel free to add yourself to the list.

To all assholes everywhere, this is for you.

Obviously, we have one overwhelming asshole, but he has gotten more than enough recognition. I think we should try to remember our local and less-international assholes. Not world leaders, yet somehow, they manage to get under your skin. They are the people you really don’t want to invite to your next party, but sometimes, you just don’t have a choice.

We worked for them and with them. We’ve lived with them. We are related to them.

This is your day, assholes. Enjoy!

    1. That’s the great thing about it. There are ALWAYS so many. Not usually as many at the national and international level, but personally? I’ve always had more than enough assholes in MY world!


  1. Yup. Well said. And thanks to Garry and his buds for bringing it to your attention, so you could bring it to ours. I had a conversation with an on-line friend yesterday and I mention that because it’s so eerie. She said “If all you associate with are assholes, maybe YOU’RE the asshole.” She said that on a certain social media site where it was guaranteed to stir pots and get her lots of likes and hearts and stuff….I saw it and replied thusly: “I’m NOT an asshole, but I AM an asshole magnet a lot. ” I don’t know if we’re still ‘speaking or not…” Thanks for the second good laugh of my day Marilyn!! ❤
